No. 9 Medium Writing Board

The Writing Board is a Colonel favorite. “I made the first Writing Board for my personal use and still use it every day. If you’re like me and work from a chair more often than at a desk . . . if thoughts and ideas come to you more easily when committed first to pen and paper . . . if you understand the power of a hand-written letter or note; you’re going to love the Writing Board,”

– Colonel Littleton

Functionality and Design – Serves as the Optimal Mobile Desk

It’s great for letters, cards, notes, designing, planning and as a support for books and some tech gear (holds 12.9” iPad Pro with outside dimensions of 11”T x 8 ½”W and smaller tablets). Used with a ruled pad that is included, you can upgrade from a clipboard to a more professional look with the No. 9 Medium Writing Board. (Set of 6 Standard 8.5″ x 11″ Memorandum Pad Refills  may be reordered.)

Brass screws at the top hold an assortment of papers, while leather straps hold your pen or pencil. Two small leather corner pockets secure cards or notes. A copper tube at the bottom prevents your book or papers from sliding off the board and rare earth magnets at the top and on each side hold paper clips, pens, scissors, etc.

13 ¼”H x 10 5/8”W Wooden board handmade of American Cherry. Made in Lynnville, TN by one of our local craftsmen. May be personalized with three initials on solid brass plate. Serves as the optimal mobile desk. Use it at home, at the office, or on location.

  1. My son talked me out of my No. 10 writing board–spoiled? Yes, but so am I! Replaced the No. 10 with the No. 9 for myself. Love it! The smaller size is a better fit for me, and it has the same quality features as the larger board. Won’t anyone talk me out of this one.

  2. The desk is a piece of art, very useful and comfortable to use. We enjoyed the moon pie included too. Thank you.

  3. I bought one of these jobbers about three years ago. I used it to write up an invention disclosure which got submitted to the US Patent Office. This year, the final issued patent was made. It is number 81156739 (“System, Method, and Computer Program Product for Generating a Data Storage Server Distribution Pattern”). It also forked off to a second patent: 81259786. It is patented in the United States and throughout Europe.

    So, flush with this success, I ordered another clipboard for this year. I feel more ideas brewing in my head.
    Word to the doubtful and the wary: Do not ever underestimate the power of a Littleton writing board!

  4. Of all of the Colonel’s items I’ve purchased, this is the one! I bought the #10 and it is phenomenal on its own, I bought the #9 for a gift and they loved it so much I bought one for me and it is irreplaceable with my tablet iPad, perfection in every sense, great craftsmanship, great design, handy in all sense. But the real beauty of the board is that it’s going to age and get more attractive as it ages and gains character! Great job craftsmen and craftswomen, my thanks, spc.

  5. I love it. The craftsmanship is exquisite and it is quite useful in many ways. It is a type of writing board one would be proud to use in a corporate boardroom or by the sofa.

Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steerhide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

Our Craftsmanship

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
